Flora of Cornwall (1999)

The descriptive text, below the map, is from the Flora of Cornwall (1999), which was a Tetrad Atlas (the maps had 2km square dots or Tetrads). The map on this web page depicts the plant's distribution at the 1km square scale and shows the records made pre-2000 which were used in the 1999 Flora and those made since.

Carex canescens - White Sedge

i> Carex curta is rare in Cornwall. It may still be found on Bodmin Moor, in marshes, by streams and rivers as by the De Lank river near Bradford Bridge (SX17C, 1988, R.J.Murphy). It also occurs in mires on the mid-Cornwall moors such as Red Moor (SX06Q, 1987, V.Fojt) and Breney Common (SX06K, 1989, R.J.Murphy). Recently, it has been recorded from a marsh by a disused quarry at Gaverigan (SW95J, 1993, G.E.Castle).
